• Review your mid-quarter progress report and share it with your parents. Heed the warnings and follow the suggestions mentioned in the above October suggestions.


  • If you did not register for any SAT, and you are college-bound, you need to register for the January SAT. For students with free or reduced lunch, there are a limited number of fee waivers available from your guidance counselor.


  • Continue working on your college applications. Once you submit / mail your application(s), after one or two weeks, you may also want to call schools to verify the receipt of your complete application.


  • If any college applications have a January 1st deadline, make sure you complete and collect all required documents two weeks before the start of Christmas vacation. Do not take a chance that you, a teacher or a guidance counselor becomes ill and you are unable to collect required documents. Also, do not take the chance that school is cancelled due to the weather.


  • Attend the Financial Aid Night in late November or early December. Listen for announcements, expect reminder phone calls, and check the Guidance website for further details.


  • Visit the Guidance Department website, for valuable information and resources about scholarships and post graduate options (including college). Look for scholarships: use the scholarship search feature on the College Board and FastWeb websites and check the Lynn English Guidance Department website. DO NOT pay for any scholarship search services.


  • Listen to daily announcements on the morning television show and the daily announcements by the principal in the morning and afternoon.
